Rainbow Walkway

June 2022

We were delighted to be joined today by South Dublin Mayor Peter Kavanagh to launch our new Rainbow Walkway to kickstart Pride celebrations at The Square.
Also in attendance were Cllr Alan Edge of the South Dublin LGBT+ Network, Pride @ The Square ambassador Paul Ryder, artist Fran Halpin, Fiona Power (The Square), Dave Mooney (Fusion Events)
Our Rainbow Walkway installation is a permanent fixture, and the first step to making The Square a more inclusive, welcoming place and ongoing supporter of our LGBT+ community.

Tree of Hope Mural

October 2021

To mark World Mental Health Day 2021, The Square teamed up with local street artist Emmalene Blake, and JIGSAW for our “Be Sound to Your Ceann” campaign.

Central to the campaign was the transformation of our “Tree of Hope” area on Level 3 with a vibrant new and permanent mural by Emmalene.

Emmalene’s design was also replicated on limited edition t-shirts and a pop up selfie station as part of a fundraising campaign in October 2021 for JIGSAW Youth Mental Health.
